Wanna feel bad about what you've achieved in life? Listen to Residual Kid. This trio of Austin-based pre-teens churn out some real classy post-grunge along the lines of Dinosaur Jr. and Weezer. Kids aren't supposed to be this good at music. What are adults supposed to do now?!
Kid just finished up recording sessions with Dinosaur Jr. frontman J. Mascis, so these cherubic young lads are about to have much less time to skateboard. Usually, acts comprised of middle schoolers are prone to gimmickry and aimed at the SpongeBob demographic, but Residual Kid's music is actually pretty good. The Mickey Mouse Club, this ain't. The only problem is that girls their age are mostly listening to Selena Gomez and could only know J. Mascis as "that creepy old guy with the long hair."
